IN DULCI JUBILO

Beautiful! IN DULCI JUBILO is one of my favorite Christmas carols. Merry Christmas to you! The original German/Latin song was written by Dominican monk Henry Suso, circa 1320. The English version by Robert Pearsall (1834) follows the original Catholic German “macaronic” style of mixing Latin with the vernacular language. Pearsall was an English composer living […]

‘I am the light of the world’

John 9 was today’s Gospel at the Roman Catholic Masses. Every single time I hear it or read it, I become a weepy mess. I weep because the young man cured of blindness fearlessly proclaims the truth. I weep because he’s humble and the model for critical thinkers. But I also weep because I think […]

Kitty Cats’ Christmas by Leon Redbone

Can’t help it. As a lifelong lover of cats, current owner of 2 boys and feeder of 2 more feral girls, this is one of my favorite Christmas songs because it’s so true! No need to buy gifts for your kitties – they delight in crunchy paper bags, batting toilet paper rolls and sleeping in […]

Mixed emotions on the movie ‘Les Misérables’

Published and argued at CatholicLane Thanks to a friend and diehard “Les Miserables” fan, I saw the movie musical but have mixed emotions about it.

Bishop David Ricken of Green Bay (in Paul Ryan’s home state Wisconsin) has caused an uproar with his October 24 letter to Catholics correctly stating the Catholic doctrine that certain acts are intrinsically evil and voting for politicians who support them puts one’s soul in jeopardy.

Disabled orphan Emmanuel inspires X Factor judges

17-year-old Emmanuel Kelly, born in Iraq and found in a shoebox with his brother, is quite inspiring. I wish he chose a better song than John Lennon’s “Imagine,” but get your tissues anyway – because this is all about love. Emmanuel says he was found by nuns, so I suppose they were Catholic nuns. Thank […]
